I don't get why you want to delete everything. I thought you were "a good contributing member of this site"?

Replied to your PM with the answer to your question.

They stay on pages forever until the page owner changes the code, they get deleted from rackspacecloud storage automatically now, and I know of no way to delete them quickly.

This is my understanding.

Mrachd9, please send me that info as well, you answer here is not totally clear to me. I have the similar issue as Tazz, and I stopped posting anything here because of worries of not being able to delete my stuff.

I am pretty sure that now deleted images will be gone from page displays, too. It has occurred on a couple of my pages; pictures that used to still show with the text but say "Deleted" if you clicked on them are now gone.

I am not guaranteeing it works that way; but it seems to be so.

Ski Mountaineer- What I sent is in the quote below.

According to Bob, the part I put in italics is incorrect. That actually when you delete a photo, it disappears EVERYWHERE. I am running a test now to confirm. On my construction page, there are 8 images and 5 links to a deleted photo- set up in various ways (in the first section, above the Van Gogh pic). Can confirm they do not disappear immediately, they are there as I write this, but I believe over a period of 12-48 hours it will work its way through the caches and some or all may disappear. Check the page later to see if they vanish, or I will post here later with the results.

EDIT: Test confirmed that deleted photos get deleted EVERYWHERE. No issues.
my understanding is, with the recent transformation that Matt has made it
so that when you delete a photo, it now disappears from the rackspacecloud
storage. It didn't get deleted there until he made the recent change. so
any photos would no longer appear in forum links, users will NOT be able to
get to originals, etc...

but they still remain on the mountain/route main pages if in the html
code, or in the profile image, even after deleting.


i know of no way to delete photos in a less than very tedious manner.

Yes, this is true. I changed it so that images are ACTUALLY DELETED from the RackSpaceCloud when they are deleted from SummitPost. However, the RS Cloud caches the images for a while, so they may not disappear instantly.

It doesn't take that long though, at least sometimes. All the images gone on my test page within 3 hours.

Sounds like she didn't
Take time to review SummitPost's Terms of Service.


But Tazz, this is a lot of drama for someone with 4 mountains (3 of which haven't been updated or maintained since 2006), and a few dozen highly-rated pictures. What are the chances anybody is using any of that stuff? Anyway, the sooner you delete it, the lower the chances anybody will rip it off from here--they'll have to go to your self-aggrandizing website to get it.

You've been on the ledge for a week. Time to come inside or jump off.

Sorry, no time to read your posts, boys. Been really busy trying to find an attorney dumb enough to take an Internet-name-calling case to court. . . .

I'd like to remind of this:
1. What happens here stays here. Do not complain to the Elves. Do not complain in other forums on this website or take your arguments there or into the content area of the site (nasty comments, downvoting).
Age is a matter of mind and if you don´t mind it does not matter!
